Thick and Toasty Basic Beanie (when the yarn varies…)

Sometimes, a Size 6 (super bulky) yarn can feel like a Size 5 (bulky) yarn or vice versa. Here’s a pattern for a Thick and Toasty Basic Beanie made with either a Size 5 (bulky) yarn or a Size 6 (super bulky) that really should have been labeled a Size 5!

This beanie is made with Yarnspirations Bernat Softee Chunky yarn in Shadow Ombre

This beanie is made with double crochet stitches and lined with sc at the end.

Stitches used:

ch- chain

sc – single crochet

dc – double crochet

sl st – slip stitch

st – stitch

Using thick size 5 yarn (bulky) or a thin size 6 (super bulky yarn) with an L-8 (8 mm) needle to make a large beanie (20 inch circumference and 9 inch high)

Ch 4 and loop to make a magic ring.

Row 1 – ch 2 (this counts as your first dc of this row) and then 11 dc into the ring.  Join with sl st to first dc (12 dc)

Row 2 – ch 2 (this counts as your first dc of this row), dc in the same st as joining, and then 2 dc in each stitch all the way around to end.  Join with sl st to first dc. (24 dc) 

Row 3 – ch 2 (this counts as your first dc of this row), dc in same st as joining, dc in the next st, then repeat {2 dc in the next st, dc in the next st} to the end.  Join with sl st to first dc. (36 dc)

Row 4 – ch 2 (this counts as your first dc of this row), dc in same st as joining, dc in the next 2 st, then repeat {2 dc in the next st, dc in the next 2 st} to the end.  Join with sl st to first dc (48 dc)
